My Aylesbury has been laying her eggs in a new nest box I've put in as she kept laying eggs on the floor all around the paddock. She has been laying daily for 6 days straight and has now stopped with the eggs for the past 2 days! She waits until im out of sight and creeps into the box to lay and then hides them in the straw. Ive been checking the eggs every night after she is in bed with the rest of my ducks. Is this a sign she is about to sit on them or has she got spooked and abandoned the clutch? Should i remove them and try them in the incubator myself or should i wait? If so for how long? The first egg she laid in thew box is. now 9 days old. This is her fist year of this behaviour. She is only a year old.
